It's official

  I have become what I swore I would never do.  
A blurker.....

You know THAT kind.  The blogger who reads post after post after post and doesn't leave a comment.

I used to be a good commenter.  Usually something encouraging,  supportive, or even witty.

I've lost it.  Lost it all.  Instead right now, I am enjoying reading, catching up, peeking into the lives of those that I have met on-line and enjoy/admire.   I am laughing at their humor, or learning from their insight but not leaving my voice.

Sorry.

Working on finding my voice again, but in the meantime.....keep posting 'cause I'm still reading

i TOTALLY know how that is. i don't mind your doing that at all! it's big of you to admit it. we all do it from time to time :)

tammy said...

Totally okay. I find myself reading a few, commenting on a few, and then marking all as read. But I kind of feel good that I'm not as glued to the computer anymore.

Valerie said...

I've been a "blurker" lately too...and an infrequent poster as well.
Times and seasons, right? :)

And...it was great to meet you @ the blog dinner Cherie hosted.

I think we all feel that way.
It is amazing at how the hours can be eaten up in front of the screen.

Cherie said...

I agree with the other commentors. Comment when you can Blurk when you feel like it!

DesertHen said...

Yep...I've been a Bluker lately too! Now I know there is a word for it...heehee! I've been so busy lately with work that I haven't had the time to comment like I usually do on all of my fav blogs. So like you, I'm out there reading and enjoying! So blurk away Mcat, blurk away. =)

Everyone is blurking. Comments are low everywhere, even on the "big" blogs. Except pioneer woman. She gets something like twenty thousand comments every time she posts. But she also gives away $2000 cameras. So, you know. I guess she deserves the comments. :) I kinda think blog "interaction" is moving to Facebook. Which is weird, and kind of sad. I don't know. Either way, I'm glad you're still out there. ;)

I've been Blurking lately too. I'm now following well over 150 blogs...

Ann Marie said...

Blurk AWAY!

Love you!

Teachinfourth said...

You and I would always make a club...I've been guilty of this lately as well...

Erin said...

I'm a blurker too. Ironic how a blog post about blurking gets quite a few comments, eh?

Pedaling said...

it happens.

no worries.

wendy said...

as all of these commentors have mentioned.....I guess we all go through that sometimes.
Just don't have anything that seems of any worth to say.
I have actually even been tempted to QUUIT my blog.
I am feeling very blahhhhh about it.
but I love ya, and enjoying knowing what's going on in your world.

Nancy said...

I go through spurts where I blurk, too. It is usually when I have nothing witty or important to say in response. Lately I've been more a reader and less of a writer on blogs. Lame-o, I know! ;]

BTW, I saw this on Totsy and thought of your Yankee room:

Hope you are having a lovely day! :]

I'm a total lurker. I love to read but just don't always have anything to contribute. I refuse to feel obligated. Too much work!

Let me try this again (that was me above, "comment removed by author"). Because I messed up. Which is why I don't comment any more. I don't even read as much any more, rarely comment and never post.

But just so ya know, the love is still there. So I'm glad you're still posting.

JennyLynn said...

I am a blurker as well, just did not know there was a name for it.

Sue said...

blurking is good when you have a "life that is demanding more and more of your time"

Comments are nice but not when they become a burden.

When you can do
when you can't don't
no worries ever!

I get that way sometimes too. So I can be patient....especially since I have been lame about posting lately :-(
